to "morning joe." everyone's a little tired here for some reason. with us on set, we have msnbc contributor mike barnicle. wake up, mike. and the president of the council on foreign relations -- you were not up. richard was. it was so good. >> how many times have you been now? >> you haven't been. >> 13th time. >> willie, have you been? >> i have not been to the opera. >> it's really good. lincoln center. >> i walked past the fountain at the lincoln center. >> you have to go. i'm going to force you. >> on the way to p.j. clark's. >> right across. obviously, we have a lot to talk about. coming up, the sequester, of course, is going down to the wire. robert gibbs had some interesting comments on drones which we'll talk about. but, of course, it was the big night at the oscars that everyone is probably still talking about this morning. complete with some redemption for ben affleck. affleck and the crew of "argo" beat out films like "lincoln" and "silver linings playbook" to win best picture. but "lincoln" had its day in the sun as daniel day-lewis earned his third academy award for best actor.
